Eligible Transit Vehicle Manufacturers

DBE regulations require FTA recipients to report transit vehicle procurement awards (49 CFR 26.49). Since November 2014, FTA grantees have been required to submit, within 30 days of making an award, the name of the successful bidder and the total dollar value of the contract. Only eligible TVMs may bid on FTA-assisted transit vehicle procurements. Transit vehicle manufacturers that have submitted a goal methodology to FTA that has been approved, or has not been disapproved, at the time of solicitation are eligible to bid (49 CFR 26.49(a)(1)). To remain eligible, TVMs must submit their DBE goal methodology to FTA by August 1 of each year. The following is a list of eligible TVMs:
